Greg McKinney

Greg McKinney (G-Mack) has been a part of Upstate sports for many years.  He's the voice for the Byrnes Rebels High School football team, he also has been the voice for the Greenville Red Raiders and the Dorman Cavaliers.  Greg has also worked on college fields by being a part of the Wofford College Radio team and a member of the Wofford College Hall of Fame.  Greg hosts "The College Football Today" Pregame show before every Clemson football game on 93.3 The Planet.  And to really round out an Upstate sports experience, Greg has covered news and sports in the Carolinas for years, and is a past president of the Radio-Television News Directors Association of the Carolinas. 
G-Mack is host of "The Huddle" every weekday from 1-4pm on ESPN Upstate.  "The Huddle" was named "Sports Talk Show of the Year" by the South Carolina Broadcasters Association in 2016 and 2017.

Here's G-Mack's outlook for the upcoming season:

Expectations are running high for South Carolina’s major college programs in 2018.  For Clemson, anything short of another college football playoff bid would be an unwelcome surprise.  The Tigers are loaded defensively, and have the talent on offense to run through their regular season schedule without a hiccup.  All eyes are on the quarterback battle between Kelly Bryant and Trevor Lawrence, but it’s clear Clemson can win big with either of the two. At South Carolina, Will Muschamp’s third season will feature a new look, uptempo offense behind QB Jake Bentley.  With the return of Deebo Samuel along with a strong wide receiver group, the Gamecocks should have more offensive punch in 2018.  There are questions about the defense, but Muschamp’s ability on that side of the football has never been in doubt.   And, with nearby Georgia in the national title mix, there’s plenty to watch for college fans in the region.    Buckle up!  College football in our area has never been better!

 Mark Sturgis

 Mark Sturgis is host of “Straight Up with Sturg” from 4-7 PM on ESPN  Upstate. "Sturg" was named 2016 NSMA South Carolina Sportscaster of the Year!
 Mark has always been involved in sports, having grown up in an Upstate  family that placed Clemson athletics in very high regard.

 Sturg threw that family a curve ball when he announced he would be attending the University of Alabama.  Mark majored in Broadcast and Film Communications, then furthered his education at Full Sail University in Winter Park, Florida; focusing on Specialized Recording Engineering.

 Mark left the Sunshine State for his first job at Big Mama Recording Studios in Knoxville with dreams of mixing the next great rock and roll album.  The reality was ole Sturg was cutting about twenty country karaoke tunes per week (did you know this is where Kenny Chesney got his start?).  Stuck in “Big Orange Country” recording country karaoke, well, he thought it was purgatory.

Two years later, it was off to another studio in Atlanta, working for Harry O’Brien; the very same Harry O’Brien that had recently produced Tag Team’s “Whoop There it Is” album.  Yeah, that’s right… THAT song!  It seemed every hip hop group in the southeast then wanted Harry’s services.  From country karaoke to hip hop; where’s the rock and roll?

Sturg found that on the road, mixing live bands from the local level to Fuel and Drivin-n-Cryin.  The ironic part was something was missing… Knoxville.  It turns out Mark fell in love with the city, and wanted to move back when he could.  After a stop in Charlotte with JP Sports, Knoxville became a base of operations while touring with bands and working locally with others.  Knoxville is also where he began his marriage to Teresa and their daughter was born.

In 2002, Mark granted his wife’s wish of moving back to the Upstate, and went to work for Edwin McCain’s company, OMG.  There the sports talk bug bit as he became part of The Opening Drive, radio show.  Mark started by doing drops from sites of athletic events and developing a network of contacts throughout the media.  Later Sturg would develop and market the syndicated radio show, The Score, before being able to sell it (See Lowell in Wings episode when he gets a check for his wax museum burning down!!).
